Price Gougers Are Out Following Hurricane Harvey
As of Sunday, the Attorney General’s Office reports fielding 350 price gouging complaints from people in the areas hit by Hurricane Harvey.
According to KXAN, the numbers of complaints will continue to grow each day.
“There’s nothing wrong with a free market, but this isn’t a free market" Attorney General Ken Paxton told KXAN in an interview "This is an unusual market where you have a storm like that that creates such devastation,”
Adding to these complaints, a video was posted by Facebook user Marcus Griffin of a man selling water for $20 a case.
It’s cases like this the Texas Attorney General’s Office is hoping the public tells them about.
